▋ BODYSTYLE: Skinny/Curvy (Pear)
▋ BIRTHDAY: February 20 (1989)
▋ HOME ISLAND: Affection Atoll
▋ PERSONALITY: Maple has a Hardy
nature, which allows her to endure great turmoil both emotionally and physically--or financially. She is used to living on her own, but hopes to gain the comfort of friendship by moving to Affection Atoll and by opening a little shop. She is also quite modest about herself, and refuses to take compliments, though she tends to dish them out to her customers often.
▋ HISTORY: Maple was born a single-child to two parents that lived in a small apartment in Celadon City. Her parents ran a coffee shop and were very diligent about raising enough money for their daughter to get a college education. Their overprotective tendencies caused Maple a bit of grief, and though she committed herself to studying, she often felt that her heart laid somewhere else. The city of Celadon was oftentimes a very busy place with little room for her to relax, and she found that solitude was difficult to come by.
When she finished her Bachelor’s degree in Evolutionary Biology, with a minor in Gemology and Fashion Design; she started working alongside her parents at the cafe. Without having many friends of her own, she became an avid people watcher on the job. She slowly realized that the happiest customers were those with many friends and stories from places afar, and a growing sense of curiosity caused her to begin planning her exodus from the city. Maple began to fantasize about opening her own shepherding ranch and living life under starry nights and bright skies.
Eventually she got the nerve to tell her parents the truth. At first her parents were elated with the news, their baby girl was finally going to step out on her own! She was going to be a proper scientist, they thought. But their hopes were dashed when Maple confessed her desire to become a rancher in a place far away. With time her parents conceded and through their support, Maple managed to save up enough money to move to the Affection Atoll and open up a little coffee shop of her own.
She dreams of one day breaking into the Mareep/Flaffy business but also deeply wishes to make new friends. For the meantime, she does what she knows best, and that’s serving up a fresh cup of coffee. One day she might even realize that making coffee was always more than just a source of income, it is in fact the lifeblood of her soul.

nature, which means he doesn't hesitate to greet customers, show off, or pretend he's the one actually running the show.

▋ FUN FACTS:
Dog Allergy: Maple is extremely allergic to dogs, to the point of sneezing when she’s in the same room with them. If her skin makes contact with a dog she breaks out in hives. Chances are if you bring a dog near her, Maple will be sneezing within minutes.
Astraphobia: Maple also suffers from a severe case of astraphobia, better known as a fear of lightning. This fear causes her to grow panicky when storms roll in and seek shelter indoors.
Caffeine Addiction: Though she’ll deny it, Maple is addicted to caffeine. She can’t function well without it, and is unusually clumsy and groggy before her first cup in the morning. She also is able to down a high quantity of caffeine before she experiences jitters or other effects.
▋ ABILITY: Anticipation: Senses a foe's dangerous moves.
This causes Maple to be hypersensitive to weather changes and she shudders if a Pokémon or fellow resident enters her presence that possesses a super-effective attack or any moves with one-hit knockout capabilities. She also has a knack for sensing trouble or danger before it happens, but is usually unable to affect the outcome of such forces because she is unable to pinpoint the source.
Fake Tears: (Type: Dark / Category: Status / Contest: Smart) Fake Tears lowers the target's Special Defense stat by two stages.
Maple inherited this move from her father’s side, she uses this move only rarely to set others off guard if things aren’t going her way. She usually uses this move to guilt customers into sticking around when they have to go—though sometimes fake tears can turn into real tears.
Charm: (Type: Normal / Category: Status / Contest: Cute) The user gazes at the target rather charmingly, making it less wary. The target's Attack is harshly lowered.
Maple inherited charm from her father’s side. She uses this move to lure in customers and to get extra tips at her shop by winking at customers and charming them with friendly compliments.
Quick Attack: (Type: Normal / Category: Physical / Contest: Cool) The user lunges at the target at a speed that makes it almost invisible. It is sure to strike first.
Maple often uses this attack to speed up her coffee serving time, sometimes it has disastrous results though. This is especially useful when she has multiple orders, but then the ratio of accidents begins to rise.
Yawn: (Type: Normal / Category: Status / Contest: Cute) The user lets loose a huge yawn that lulls the target into falling asleep on the next turn.
Maple tends to come off her daily dose of caffeine early in the afternoon, which causes her to produce long yawns. This in turn causes her customers to grow sleepy and order more coffee.
